One of the most attractive World Series Rings ever created comes from the Browns' American League Championship season of 1944, when they lost to the crosstown rival Cardinals in six games. Due to the "thriftiness" of the organization, there is no diamond. However, it boasts an enamel shield of the classic Browns crest, one of the most classic baseball logos of all time. "AMERICAN LEAGUE CHAMPIONS" is written across the outside of the face. One side panel reads: "ST. LOUIS" while "1944" is split up on each side. This ring is in spectacular, apparently unworn condition. Presented to Samuel Copp McCluney, a Princeton alum who owned part of the team. It is Size 6 with the name engraved inside. This is the third known specimen in hobby hands that we're aware of. Originally known as the Milwaukee Brewers, the Browns played in St. Louis between 1901 and 1953 before becoming the Orioles. Their move to Baltimore was highly unusual at the time as franchises that were on the move had relocated West.
